    Do the Bonnet Creek partner hotels offer early entry at the themeparks? If yes, how do I show that I'm eligible for early entry at the park turnstiles.

    Hallo, Peter!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with a great question. We are thrilled to help you plan an unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort adventure!

    Early Theme Park Entry is one of my favorite Disney Resorts Collection Guest benefits. Entering the parks 30 minutes earlier makes a difference if you are trying to get a head start on some of the most popular attractions. I am happy to share that this pixie-dusted perk is also available for registered Guests staying at other select hotels. Although I do not know which Bonnet Creek hotel you will be staying at, Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria Orlando currently offer this benefit for registered Guests.

    To take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, you must link your hotel reservation to My Disney Experience. Please note that partner hotels usually have their own booking number and another number Guests can use to link their reservations. Be sure to ask the hotel to provide a confirmation number that can be linked to your Disney account. When you arrive at park entrance, Cast Members will scan your MagicBand, Key to the World card, or your mobile device with a Disney MagicMobile pass and confirm that you are eligible for Early Theme Park Entry.

    I recommend arriving at the park you wish to visit approximately 30 minutes before Early Theme Park Entry begins. You will notice Guests lining up at park entrance for Early Theme Park Entry, but other Guests will also be lining up for regular theme park opening time. You will see signs directing you to the correct queue, but you can always ask a Cast Member for assistance. 

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Peter. I hope this information is helpful and that you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
